WIP - Nashua Knitworks Wrap



This is the "Wrap" from Nashua Knitworks. It's a wonderful new range of yarns from Westminster Fibers (who also distribute Rowan and Jaeger yarns). The colour is called Delft and it's a blend of 75% wool and 25% alpaca. I'm using a size 6 32" Addi Turbo circular needle; this photo shows the wrap pattern with 5 completed repeats. Best thing, this pattern is reversible...I can't tell the front side from the reverse side! It's supposed to use 5 skeins, each with 200 metres (220 yards), so I've got lots more knitting to do! This shawl, quite selfishly, will be for me (no bets as to whether I decide to give it away once it's done!).

Thanks, Cindy! I love making shawls...no worries about whether it will fit!

If you're a beginner at lace shawls, the Cozy from knitty.com is an excellent one to start with because it's rectanglular. The Leaf Lace shawl from Fiber Trends is a great one for a shawl that "grows"...it's easy to work and the pattern isn't complicated.

Get knitting!!!
